4.13/5 rDev +12.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: This beer pours from the bottle to a creamy, light head that slowly diminished to a foamy disc throughout the entire glass. The color is golden-orange and there were some unfiltered bits (yeast?) in suspension, but I would not call it cloudy.
Smell: There was nothing impressive about the smell; nothing descript. A slight hoppiness coming through, possibly yeasty, but not much else.
Taste: A very fresh hop taste pervades and the whole beer tastes balanced and is nicely carbonated. The hops open up even more over time. The balance is impressive between having a strong hop profile while still being crisp enough to be a very suitable warm-weather summer brew.
Drinkability: Very drinkable. This is more substantian than a typical summer beer, yet is still light and crisp enough to drink a couple in a sitting; even in cooler weather.
I really enjoy this beer a lot and have bought it again and again.

Twilight Summer Ale from Deschutes Brewery, my first by these guys. Poured from the bottle into a glass, this brew's got a 1.5 finger thick light tan head, clear golden body, and awesome lacing.
I smell lighter malts, not a whole lot of hop profundity. A little bit of earthiness is present here, too.
Just a very slight bit of sweet malt before an even lighter hop taste. But this brew doesn't skimp on flavor. Just the right balance of body and lightness.
Mouthfeel is light and crisp. These guys did an awesome job with this ultra quenching consistency!
Overall an outstanding 4 Twilight Summer Ale from Deschutes Brewery. This is one of the best seasonal summer brews I've experienced! I will buy this brew again.
